Green smoothies

So, tonight I lost 1.8 pounds.  I'm good with that.  I thought it was going to be a little more, but we worked in the garden for about 2 hours before we went in to weigh.  I wonder if that had something to do with it.  I will weigh tomorrow on my scale and see what it says.

We talked about green smoothies (among other things) tonight at Lose It.  I honestly have never thought about putting kale, lettuces, spinach in my blender before.  I've done carrots, and fruits-- but not green veggies.  She did kale, lettuce, 1 frozen banana, 1/2 cup frozen raspberries and some greek yogurt.  YUM!!!

So, it's got me thinking that I will try green veggies next!

Anyone out there big on smoothies?  Any great, yummy recipes to share?!

I love smoothies. But, im pretty basic!! I use skim milk, ice, a cup of spinach (raw) and then whatever fruit Im hungry for.

I've been meaning to try green smoothies... I keep telling myself to go down & try one now! I've been told to go pure with just veggies & fruit so I'm going to use a banana and then as much spinach as I can handle, starting with a handful I guess. I have some strawberries on hand just in case I need a little more sweetness. Off I go to play around with my first one, wish me luck!
